Bruce Jenner is publicly confirming that he has skin cancer for the first time.

As Gossip Cop previously reported, the Olympian-turned-reality star underwent surgeries in 2012 and just earlier this week to have cancerous growths removed from his face.

Now, in his first comments on the disease, Jenner reveals he’s suffering from “basal cell carcinoma and have undergone Mohs surgery to remove it.”

“I have been struggling with this for several years and appreciate all of the support and prayers while I continue to fight the battle against skin cancer,” he says.

Jenner adds to E! News, “This has taught me to be extra vigilant when out in the sun and I encourage others to get regular checkups and always wear sunscreen.”

Our thoughts are with Jenner and his family during this difficult time.
